    Jeep/heep En Espanol Lol — This car rules!! with the sturdy jeep construction and the monstrous 4.0 litre engine and switchable sports box(automatics only) it makes for eye opening acceleration and the power for towing anything from a trailer to a tractor....Off road capability isnt the best, however, with its good design and sturdy construction if you bounce into a few rocks or hitch up on a tree stump dont worry too much(trust me I know)

    Pros: lots of all round useable strength

    Cons: expensive parts and fuel economy both make for expense!!!

    Machine — Car was great. Never had any problems. Poor Fuel Economy. 4WD was a little shaky.

    Low Roll Beast Of The Road — I love this car, I am on my second! A it thirsty but is forgivable because it's can do everything an estate can anywhere (on or off the road). Doesn't roll as much as a Discovery or other high clearance 4x4's and looks good at the same time.

    Pros: Space, high driving position, high level of spec on most models

    Cons: Fuel thirsty

    Good Family Fun — I love this Jeep! This is the second one I have owned and I am totally hooked on Jeeps. I can haul just about anything and have! I have used just my Jeep to move twice! We have even slept in the back when out tent sprang a leak while camping. I has good accelleration and handles well off road as well as on and the gas mileage is great.

    Pros: I get great gas mileage and it's comfortable and fun to drive off road or on.

    Cons: It is a bit smaller inside than the '89 I owned previously.

    It's A Jeep — Stock its pretty tough, the 4.0 has more then enough power and with stock tires you can easily break loose and let it slide or play grip for handling that can keep up with any car I've met(not to say its a track car, just that your average driver can't readily out run you).So If you are into a fun but useful car, this is for you, plus its a jeep, and what makes a jeep a jeep is what you do to it, like lifting and bumpers etc. Thats another plus, there are so many options that if you want it you can have it on the XJ, and if you can't buy it, You can fabricate it yourself following someone elses directions(as its already been done if you're just now thinking of it).

    Pros: Parts galore. 4.0 is reliable, easy to find parts for and easy to work on. Easy to mod or to get info on/about.

    Cons: ah, none really, i mean, its a small suv, so if you want to fill it up, it gets full really quick. And, its gas milage is 16 no matter how nice or how hard you are, I cannot get mine to go above 16.8 or below 15.7 and thats with a couple top 3rd gear runs on the same day/same tank.

    Best Vehicle Ever! — I love this car. But you have to know how to drive it, they are very different vehicles. They are full of personalility, and will take care of you if you take care of it. Sometimes you have to work with it, but if you can trun a wrench you can easily fix this jeep. Have fun with it!

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Sometimes requires a little work.

    I Love My Jeep — This Jeep has gone through snow over 2 feet deep. The Jeep has had its headlights go underwater. This Jeep is by far the best vehicle on the road today... that I own.

    Pros: Speedo... good, Rev Counter... good, Gearbox... good

    Cons: I sometimes stand on the brakes, but that just adds character.
